Metaphors My Mother Never Taught Me

writingsforwinter:

On the days when your body feels like a broken hour glass

and all you want is to tip it over and let the remaining sand spill out,

think of how many good minutes you still have left.

Heartbreak is like rain: eventually it dries up and disappears through the cracks

of whatever pieces your heart…

"Seize that loveliness.
It has always been yours."

excerpt from Yrsa Daley-Ward, ‘bone.’
